. it went for barack obama four years ago, but then a white republican a year later in the gubernatorial election. -- then went republican a year later in the of editorial election. for gin is a battleground state, although it appears to be trendy -- virginia is a battleground state, although it appears to be trending towards romney. obama and romney have spent so much time in virginia and ohio that they will have to start paying taxes in both states. ohio? >> ohio remains beyond romney's grasp at this point in large part because obama is doing better there with white voters than he has across the country, and in the northeast of ohio, the auto bailout made a difference i. it is so much of a problem that rob portman, introducing romney in defiance, ohio in front of a huge crowd, said that "we have got to talk about this auto bailout tonight." they are still trying to explain. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it will be a tough one to reach. but it is still very close race. >> virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i look at the polls, and romney i
important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an age divide, if you look at likely voters in ohio. among voters under the
. new hampshire would give him four so that's not big enough. but obama campaign increasingly thinks the latino vote in nevada would do it. that would put the president over the top there. if he didn't get nevada for some reason, the president's options would be colorado, virginia, new hampshire or florida. the president with an easier path. what about governor romney. let's leave this one blue. can governor romney get there if ohio is going blue. can romney get all the way to 270 when the president's already at 275. well, he would have to win florida, he would have to win virginia. then you're at 255, 254. he would have to win colorado. that would put him in play at 263. then from there, how does governor romney get over the top? he would if he won wisconsin, paul ryan's home state. 10 electoral votes right there. logic being if the president's winning ohio, these are two very similar states. so wisconsin would be one model and let's just say for the sake of argument that one did stay blue, that puts the president right there. governor romney would have to get there by winning in ne
of the united states. it's true. i thought we already did go with president obama four years ago and we did get screwed. it has hurt the last four years. it's been bad. we have didn't like it at all. i don't understand the point of the add. she has the same last name as obama's mom, though. bizarre. >> greg: i didn't notice that. there is a conspiracy waiting to happen. what do you think, michelle, our great first lady thinks of this? >> dana: a lot of ads they have to say i'm barack obama and i approve this message. who approved this message? valerie jarret, anita dunn? who is in the white house? stephanie cutter? who thought this was a great idea. i'll tell you who. two of the top guys at obama campaign tweeting this out like crazy, coolest thing they heard. ib stead, one of the thing it talks about is the gender gap with women on the campaign. there is also one with men. in particular, men who are fathers. a lot of them are fathers of daughters whose worst nightmare is thinking about this. it just is desperation and tacky. >> andrea: he is a father to two daughters. weird. >> greg: i bet he
is the third thing things will get much better over the next four years. that's a case that president obama has not made that effectively or sometimes at all. the other guy is really bad. we're in the middle here. let us finish the job but there is no overwhelming case, if you elect me again boy things will get much better. brian williams asked him about it on rock center. look at his luke warm answer here. >> would you be prepared to enact truly major changes. >> the plan that i put forward with education with making college and job training accessible to people, to insure that our manufacturing base is right back here in the united states opposed to overseas. the work we've done in increasing oil and gas production and clean energy, putting americans back to work, including veteran veterans rebuilding roads and bridges. those are all designed to make sure we have more rebust future that that was not that good of an answer. hey look, here are these numbers. this is why it's really important. when asked about the next four terms. the first team like the second, only 4% want that. that's a horri
that four years ago early voting helped obama win the white house. the same thing is being said this year, that a lot of voters will come early and vote before election day. this is our new poll out in ohio. among those voting early, you can see the president has a big advantage there, 58% to 39%. mitt romney has the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yeste
barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with incomes over over $75,000. barack obama carried them 15-49 in 2008. romney made bigger gains with the high income people than people in the lower income category. >> the swing over the last 20 years in affluent suburbs has been attributed to culture, gay marriage and the southern tilt of the republican party, is the swing back this year really because of the economy trumping culture in the minds of most voters? >> well, i think that's true of all segments of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rub
. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a warsmer michigan. >> the romney campaign is saying they're making major investment in ohio, time and money. are they making -- taking a gamble by making a bet on ohio, that if they lose, they will not have fought or invested a lot of money or time in michigan and pennsylvania, which they might win? are they making a long bet on ohio? >> well, i think they're probably making a correct bet on ohio. ohio is 18 electoral votes are
've talked to say barack obama has been our single most effective recruiting tool in the last four, five years. >> well, i think there's some truth to that. immediately after obama was elected, we saw two of the largest hate websites in the country crash. >> reporter: potok told us that by the late '80s, the klan dwindled to a few hundred. they now number closer to 6,000. >> white power! >> reporter: he believes they can be very dangerous. >> it's dangerous, not so much because a whole bunch of klansmen get together in a room and plan to murder 1,000 people with a bomb so, you know, it's the lone wolf characters that get frustrated with their leaders that break away, you know, one day, walk out of their house and start shooting. >> reporter: with that in mind, at a gas station outside of tupelo, the grand dragon appears. he is also known as steven howard, 31 years old, he says he's an iraq war veteran. he comes with a loaded pistol on his hip and tells me he's got serious ptsd. we agree to follow him to a remote location, where cell phone service is spotty. next to a trailer by the woods
will be around for another four years. >> reporter: but if these unscientific polls skew toward obama analysts will tell you because he's been a pop culture figure since his first campaign. and the challenger mitt romney is a less transformational figure. i'm not stunned that these pop culture measures might edge towards obama, but again, it doesn't really mean anything except that. but it's a fun measure. and as fatigue sets in here in the final days of a very long campaign, maybe a little fun is exactly what american voters need. jonathan man, cnn. >> i will buy that, jonathan mann. states of emergency declared all along the east coast. we're looking at what could be a unprecedented storm just days before election day. [ man ] in hong kong, on my way to the board meeting... anne's tablet called my phone. anne's tablet was chatting with a tablet in sydney... a desktop in zurich... and a telepresence room in brazil. the secure cloud helped us get some numbers from my assistant's pc in new york. and before i reached the top, the board meeting became a congrats we sold the company party. wait ti
avalon is in virginia, a state that president obama won four years ago, and a state mitt romney would really love to have in his column ten days from now. everybody would love to have every single state in their column. so why is virginia -- first of all, how are you doing? why is virginia so important to the election? >> reporter: i'm doing great, we'll talk to students at washington university in just a bit. virginia is one of the three big swing states, florida, virginia, ohio, the path of the battleground bus that we have been on. virginia is fascinating, because president obama was the first democrat to win it since lyndon johnson, in 1964. the population is growing, more diverse now. now the population growth, frankly well to the north of virginia was to his benefit in 2008. right now, the economy here in virginia, pretty good compared to the rest of the country, 8% national. so this is a place democrats hope they could win again. it is tight, they have a very competitive senate race. every vote counts. it is really about the ground game. >> they were going after every single de
. [applause] you know, four years ago candidate obama spoke to the times. he shrinks from it, from characters on sesame street and silly word games to misdirected personal attacks he knows are false. his campaign falls short of the magnitude of these times and the presidency of the last four years have fallen short of the promises of his campaign. four years ago america voted for a post partisan president but they've seen the most partisan of presidents and washington is in gridlock because of it. president obama promised to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, canada, in countries that have made themselves more attractive while obama's policies have made it less attractiv
to status quo versus change. four years ago broke -- barack obama was the change guy. how does that boil down in the next two weeks? molly? >> they just keep having the argument. gwen: really? oh, good. oh, joy. >> anything new at this stage? that's dangerous. >> i think you see romney focusing more on the personal and likability. he passed the debate test. he proved himself a viable alternative and now it comes down to this likable factor. every pom i've ever seen, obama has this, you may not approve of him but like him. i don't think mitt romney has that. >> i think it comes down to voter enthusiasm and getting your people out. gwen: and sometimes scaring them. look what might happen? >> exactly. >> well, thank you. still counting down. we'll keep chath away on line on the "washington week" webcast extra. you can find than at pbs.org/washingtonweek. before we go tonight, we'd like to send our condolences to the family of former senator, presidential candidate, and humanitarian george mcgovern. he passed away this week at age 90. keep up with daily developments in this too close to gues
they're deciding to knock on and why, who they are calling and how. obama built a very formidable organization four years ago. he's continued to build on that using very advanced data targeting techniques, really picking up where karl rove left off in 2004. republicans have made a lot of progress since then but most of the people who watched this objectively say they're not in the same league. >> it is such a science at this point and don't forget the republicans had to go through a primary. while the republicans were going through their primaries, the democrats were signing up voters, registering voters, figuring out how to get them out. that's why you see in the state of ohio, for example, even the polls -- though polls are a handful apart with the president in the lead, the organization in the state of ohio for the democratic party is unbelievable. . question is who do you actually get to vote early? you have to be careful. you don't caine allies your voters who are going to go out -- gwen: eight million people voted early. >> right. you need to get -- get those voters they cal
to office. it's going to happen. if he gets four more years, brk b barack obama will ruin this country and white people will be in concentration camps. if you don't believe that, people sadly mistaken. >> reporter: and his collusion to avoid this supposed impending storm is an all-white south. where all blacks, hispanics and jews are banned. given some place else, he says, to live in america. i want to make sure i understand you. if the goal is white accept aretism, separating the races, the only way to separate the races is using violence. you're not going to be able to just say nicely, please leave. >> if they will peacefully go, then yeah. but if they won't, that's the only way is through violence, is through making them go, that's it. >> reporter: and you'd be willing to be apart of that? it's a race war you're talking about, essentially. >> very much so. >> reporter: his hero and predecessor was a convicted murderer. and former head of the mississippi white knights. what do you think about sam bowers? >> greatest klansman that ever lived. >> reporter: well, he was accused and conv
. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have least wanted him to. let's get right to it. i asked him last night about former secretary of state colin powell's endorsement of president obama. this is what sununu said and why it's creating a political firestorm. final question. colin powell has decided to opt for president obama again despite apparently still being a republican. is it time he left the party, do you think? >> well, i'm not sure how important that is. i do like the fact that colin powell's boss, george herbert walker bush, has endorsed mitt romney all along, and frankly, when you take a look at colin powell, you have to wonder whether that's an endorsement based on i
with obama is going to fix it, but they're equally unsure four years of changing track with mitt romney is going to change it. so you have people, like me, like you, like just about everybody, caught in the middle. what is the right way to go. >> all right. miguel in denver, we'll continue to watch your travels. really great work this week, miguel. and also, ali velshi, in a few hours, we'll up up on "your money." nice to see you, ali. >>> up next, china, a dominant topic at this week's presidential debate. we'll tell you whether china is more threat or opportunity. but first, there are more than 1.3 billion people in china. that makes up what percentage of the world's population? is it a, 9%, b, 19%, c, 29%, no googling. i'm going to tell you on the other side of the break. begin. tomato, obviously. haha. there's more than that though, there's a kick to it. wahlalalalallala! smooth, but crisp. it's kind of like drinking a food that's a drink, or a drink that's a food, woooooh!

long-term issues for american society. so while in the next four years, look if obama is re-elected i'm a little bit skeptical about just how much he's going to be able to change. i think the sort of bigger risk, if you will, is if you have mitt romney in the white house, because i think that means you turn over possibly the senate, and certainly the house stays republicans. and there you have a lot more room to do a lot more in terms of legislation. >> i've been covering campaigns since i don't even want to tell you how many decades. but no, i think there is a sense that this is critical. not only because where we are economically, and decisions that are going to be made are going to have obviously a tremendous impact. but because you do have two candidates, and two parties, who have completely different views. where we ought to go as a country. and how we ought to approach these problems. and what the role of government is. so it isn't just the circumstances. i think it's really the difference in about how we want to move this country forward that makes it so significant. it really

a four or five point difference. the obama campaign is extremely confident that they'll win ohio and a couple of other states that will get them the numbers they need. as far as the national numbers. what about the national numbers don't they matter? i had an opportunity to talk to obama's strategist and adviser he said the way to understand national numbers when you're up in places like california or new york. and mitt romney was up in texas and mississippi and south carolina. what has happened since the first debate the margins have shrunk a little bit. instead of the president being up in california he's up by 10 or 12 points in new york. when you have survey after survey from calls all over the country there is a fairly significant portion of those voters who are getting called in california or new york where the margins are narrowing a bit, and that's what gives mitt romney a slight lead or boost. >> eliot: although it doesn't matter. ohio is a perfect storm for mitt romney. negative perfect storm. his perspective convergence of all the issues that help the president hurt hi
for the obama family. he must have stood there hoping four years from that night things would look a lot better economically speaking than they do today. >> let's look at the numbers. the gdp numbers that came out this week were above what they were projected to be. we saw a few weeks ago that unemployment was below 8% for the first time since the president took over in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the great depression. we all agree we need to do more. we agree that things can get better. but this president has done incredible things considering the republicans in congress have said from day one they will say no to anything he wants to do. not just for the economy, but to move his agenda forward. things are headed in the right direction. there is still work to do. the president believes he is showing the american people he can get the job done. he has laid out a clear plan on how to build on that. >> he is the communications director for obama. thanks so much. >> great, thanks, rick. >>> listen up, there is a new bright spot on the job front. according to the national restaurant
